Department of Neurosurgery Our vision at the METAS Adventist Hospital Neurosciences brings healthcare of international standards within the reach of every individual and to achieve excellence in everything we do. We’re passionate about making our patients better. Neurosurgery is a highly complex surgical branch which deals with the brain, spine and nerves. It requires a high level of surgical expertise. (as every neuron is important) State of the art equipment and years of experience backed by a good Intensive care unit and other specialty backup is essential to give an excellent outcome.
Common problems that a neurosurgeon deals with are head injury, spinal injury, brain tumors, spinal tumors, brain hemorrhage, hydrocephalous, nerve injuries or tumors, disc prolapse or herniation, spinal dislocation, unstable spine, congenital malformation like atlanto-axial dislocation, spinal dysraphism etc. The other diseases in which advanced neurosurgery may be required are seizure or epilepsy control and movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease. We offer services for children, adults as well as the geriatric patients.
Advances in neuroanaesthesia, neurosurgical intensive care and neuro-imaging technology have played a significant role in the development of modern neurosurgery. These have not only decreased the mortality but also improved the functional outcome. The focus has now shifted to minimally invasive techniques to further decrease the mortality and morbidity associated with surgery. It is no longer enough to save life – preservation of all functions, good cosmesis, shorter hospital stay and avoiding pain and discomfort are equally important. To fulfill these aims of excellence in neurological health care
